Known as the Venice of the North for its network of charming canals, Amsterdam has a unique brand of charm, which seeps through its gabled town houses and biking culture. But beyond its infamous liberal reputation of the Dutch capital lies a powerful maritime legacy, waiting to be discovered. Innovative, ambitious, and cosmopolitan, the city thrives on art, music, culture, and cuisine. 

For the art aficionado, there are the Rijks and Van Gogh museums and for those seeking offbeat, the Tulip Museum, the Player Piano Museum and Museum of Handbags and Purses are some of the fabulous things to do in Amsterdam

Celebrations and festivities are a way of life in Amsterdam. Fringe theatre, minimal music and events like King’s Day (formerly Queen’s Day) and birthday party for King Willem Alexander are popular with locals and tourists alike. 

From a guided walking tour in the Jordaan district, a sightseeing tour in the refurbished Eastern Docklands, to an authentic Heineken experience, a hop on hop off bus tour or a canal cruise through the city, Amsterdam never fails to exceed expectations. 

The capital of Netherlands is ideally located to venture into the countryside where windmills, cheese factories and wooden shoe workshops offer a peek into the simpler lifestyle of the past. Among the many day trip options are the idyllic canal village of Giethoorn, the blue pottery village of Delft, and the fairytale city of Haarlem.
